It’s the Australian animated TV series that has captured the hearts of kids across Australia. ABC, Screen Australia and Cheeky Little Media are pleased to announce that planning is underway for a second series of Kangaroo Beach.

The second series of Kangaroo Beach will offer further beach-based fun adventures with our four cadets, Pounce, Frizzy, Neville and Gemma and continue to explore new water safety themes for pre-schoolers and their families. Australian actor Miranda Tapsell will also be joining the cast as a guest character.

Since the series burst onto screens in 2020, it’s quickly become a smash hit with its young audience and their families, amassing an average of 1.6 million views* per episode on broadcast TV and ABC iview and securing a top #3 position of most viewed program of 2021 (within both kids and adults’ series). This was in addition to 14.9 million plays** on ABC iview within the past year. Further success has come with a Summer Special release at the end of 2021 and a release of consumer products, including a book series, kids’ swimwear and clothing, bedding and toys being available at major retailers and select independents.

The distinctive Australian beach setting is a rich storyworld with plenty of fun and action to explore beach culture that is relatable to kids all over the world in the new episodes for next summer.”

Screen Australia’s Head of Content Grainne Brunsdon said,
